Monday Night RAW: Results and Photos for July 9th, 2018

In Ring: Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring. Seth says over the years, you have given him some sweet nicknames. Mr. Money in the Bank since he won it in Boston. The Kingslayer, the Architect, Monday Night Rollins. The only moniker that matters now is Former Intercontinental Champion. Seth says he has an opportunity to change that. At Extreme Rules, he goes one on one against Dolph Ziggler for thirty minutes. The man with the most wins in that period is the Iron Man and leaves Extreme Rules as the Intercontinental Champion. Dolph is no joke. He is a veteran and he is savvy. Seth says that Dolph will bring that overgrown Scottish Wookiee, Drew McIntyre.

Dolph’s music interrupts and he makes his way to the stage with Drew McIntyre. Dolph thanks Seth for the kind words. He tells everyone not to be fooled because he will not only bring his good looks and this giant psychopath with him. He is also bringing the title. Don’t think for one second that he is not walking out of Extreme Rules as your champion. Drew says it is not all bad. At least you will have your nicknames and you will get a glimpse at the future of this place. Dolph says you are still Seth ‘Freaking’ Rollins. You are one of the best wrestlers to set foot in that ring. Dolph says you are no Dolph Ziggler. When it comes to that Iron Man match, he might win 5-0, 10-0, 100-0, or 1000-0.

Seth says the peroxide might be getting to Dolph’s brain. Dolph says you lost that one shred. Everything you poured into this title made it sweeter when he pried it from Seth’s hands. You don’t win an Iron Man Match by swinging a sledgehammer or flipping over tires. It is nothing you do in a Crossfit gym. You win by racking up victory after victory. Dolph says he is not one to brag, but at Kent State, he wrapped up enough victories he walked out the winningest wrestler.

Seth congratulates Dolph on 121 wins in college. He asks Drew if he graduated from Kent State. Drew says it does not matter where he has been, it is where he is going. He is going straight to the top. Seth says that Drew will be going wherever Dolph tells him to go. Seth wants to know why Drew is taking orders from that pipsqueak. Seth says Dolph knows your secrets. Seth asks that there are no photographs. It gets lonely in Scotland and there are only so many sheep to go around.

Dolph says it won’t be so funny after Extreme Rules when they roll over Seth on Sunday. Drew tells Seth to prove how much of a man he really is. Drew challenges Seth to a match tonight. Seth accepts the challenge and he tells Drew to be careful because he is a baaaaaaaaad man. Drew goes into the ring and so does Dolph but Seth gets out of the ring before they can get their hands on Seth.

Backstage: Drew and Dolph enter Kurt’s office and Kurt tells Drew if he loses tonight, Drew will be banned from ringside on Sunday. Kevin says that is favoritism. Drew says that is okay because Seth will not get through the match tonight.
